Brooklyn's Pictures

Last Saturday my sister took Brooklyn's pictures. Up til that day I did not think she was very photogenic. I know that I sound like a terrible mother saying that, but no pictures showed HER. I absolutely love the pictures my sister took. They turned out so cute! These are the ones I printed. And I just have to brag about my sister. She is not professional, but always takes great pictures of our family. I usually print my pictures at Sams Club, but the printing quality from our family pictures in November was terrible. I decided to use Inkley's this time and when I went in they asked if a professional took the pictures and they were copyrighted. I had to sign a paper saying I didn't steal the copyright. She is so awesome and I am so lucky she will take our pictures! Thanks Hil!!

We used this one for her birth announcements. Two months after her being born. I can't wait to get them though!

St. Patricks Day and 2 Months

The Leprechaun visited our house this year and Logan thought it was so awesome! He left a bunch of treats, turned our milk green, left green foot prints, and turned our table upside down. What a sneaky Leprechaun. Logan also got to go to Emily's preschool class and go on a Leprechaun hunt, but again the Leprechaun was too sneaky and they couldn't catch him.

The loot the Leprechaun left.

That sneaky Leprechaun even left footprints on the door. When Logan found the green milk he was so excited. He said the Leprechaun turned it green with his magical powers from his hands and that the milk tasted like Leprechauns!

Our turned upside down table. I am thinking the Leprechaun will do even more tricks next year.

On St. Patricks Day, Brooklyn also turned 2 months old. I can't believe how fast the last two months have gone. She has changed so much in the last two months. She has already gained exactly 3 pounds and is an inch and a half longer. She used to be the most relaxed baby, but within the last week has gotten a little more high maintenance. Still she is such a good baby! Her brother loves her so much and is such a big helper with her. I seriously couldn't imagin her not in our family.
2 month stats:
Weight: 10 lbs. 12 oz.- 42 percentile
Height: 21 inches- 14 percentile
Head circumference- 71 percentile

Brooklyn's Blessing

Brooklyn's blessing on Sunday was absolutely wonderful. We had so many family and friends that were so supportive and David gave her a beautiful blessing. I am so grateful to have a husband who was able and worthy to be able to do that. We also had such amazing weather, that we were able to be outside to enjoy the company of everyone. Brooklyn looked so beautiful and I am so sad she only gets to wear it one more time for pictures. I am going to blog about her two month appointment on Thursday or Friday, but I just needed to write about how much I love this little girl. She is such an amazing blessing in our life and I could not imagine her not being in our family. We all love her so much and are so grateful for her!

Brooklyn in her beautiful dress. David's parents gave her that bracelet for Christmas and I didn't get a picture, but her booties she is wearing were crocheted by our bishops wife. Have I mentioned how much I love our ward? I do!

A close up of our gorgeous little girl!

Our family of 4. I am not sure why we could not get Logan to smile normal. Maybe because he rarely gets naps on Sunday anymore because of 1:00 church.
I just want to say thank you so much to all of our family. We are so blessed to have the supportive and generous families that we do. Thank you so much for making the day even more special!

Funny Boy!

To start this funny story Logan for some reason hadn't had his hepatitis A shot and we are signing him up for preschool so he needed to get it. I took him yesterday and he was so brave and didn't even cry. I was one proud mama. That brings us to today.
While driving home from Pirate Island, Emily would ask the kids if they wanted to go places they saw. Example: Who wants to go to the mall...

Emily: Who wants to go to Rib City?
Logan: I do.
Emily: Who wants to go to Liberty Land?
Logan: I do.
Leslie: Who wants to go to the Dr. to get a shot?

Logan wasn't listening.

Emily: Who wants to go the the Dr.?
Logan: I do.
Emily: To get a shot?
Logan: Lincoln does.

Planet Play/ The Zoo/ Safe Kids Fair

We had a very busy and fun week last week, and instead of doing 3 different posts (which I really should do) I am just doing one. We started the week out by going to Planet Play (formerly Incredible Pizza) on Presidents day. Emily and Hilary had bought gift certificates on City Deals and we were worried they would eventually stop taking the coupons since they changed ownership. It was so much fun. The highlight of the day was when they did the dance contest. Logan, Layne, Lincoln, Ari, and Kenna all did it. Little did I know it was going to be a half hour of line dancing. It was hilarious watching Logan trying to line dance and to learn all the dance moves. His favorite was the Macarena.

On Wednesday for playdate we decided to take advantage of the last free zoo day until next winter. I was pretty cold but the kids had a lot of fun. We didn't have a lot of time so we told each kid they could pick one animal they really wanted to see. Layne picked an alligator, Annie picked the tigers, and Logan picked the giraffes. He is a kid after my own heart. Great way to spend playdate.

Finally, on Saturday Hilary and I took Logan to the Safe Kids Fair. We got there pretty early and because of the snow it wasn't too crowded. We were in and out within an hour. Logan's favorite things were the firetruck, tumble bus, and all of the police vehicles. He also touched a snake, but wouldn't pet the cute bunny. Silly boy. We had a great time doing a little date with just him.
